Grenada: Co-op Group sugar goes 100% Fairtrade

The Co-op Group will be the first supermarket to offer 100% Fairtrade branded and own-label sugar range after a deal with Tate & Lyle. A collaboration between the Co-operative Group and Tate & Lyle Sugars will see the convenience retailer’s entire sugar range become Fairtrade certified. The move is set to drive more than £1m of benefits to smallholder sugar cane farmers and sugar growing communities of Belize over the next two years. The Group will be the first supermarket to offer a 100% Fairtrade branded and own-label sugar range, following a long-term investment by both brands. (...) Sugar cane farmers in Caribbean and Pacific regions are losing substantial business as the result of EU policy changes, which were highlighted in Fairtrade’s 2015 report Sugar Crash.
